Stoke By Nayland for Christmas

Stoke By Nayland for Christmas





5 DAYS FROM £579


The picturesque village of Stoke-by-Nayland is located in Dedham Vale - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Suffolk-Essex border. Picturesque villages, rolling farmland, rivers, meadows, ancient woodlands and a wide variety of local wildlife combine to create what many describe as the traditional English lowland landscape, made famous worldwide by artists and still as recognisable today as it was when painted by Constable and Gainsborough.


Our base for Christmas 2020 is the superb STOKE-BY-NAYLAND HOTEL & SPA which is located in beautiful countryside just outside Colchester. Features of the hotel include a restaurant and relaxing lounge/bar along with excellent leisure facilities including gymnasium, pool, jacuzzi and steam room along with a spa* and golf range*. All of the well furnished en suite bedrooms feature tv, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.


Following a complimentary sherry/coffee and mince pie at our depot, we depart Newark and travel south east, with an extended sightseeing/lunch stop in Bury St Edmunds before continuing so to Stoke-by-Nayland and a welcome hot drink and biscuits at our hotel.

Thursday 24th December (Christmas Eve)
Morning visit to the annual Christmas Tree Festival held in the Parish Church at Stowmarket where more than 350 trees decorated by local businesses and schools will be on view. Back at the hotel, there will be mulled wine and Christmas carols sung by a local choir before dinner followed by a table magician who will intrigue and amaze!

Friday 25th December (Christmas Day)
A day at leisure in the hotel. There will be a short walk around the grounds late morning followed by Christmas lunch and the Queen’s Speech. After a buffet later in the evening there will be entertainment in the form of a quiz and keyboard player.

Saturday 26th December (Boxing Day)
After breakfast, weather permitting, there will be a short tour around the pretty countryside of Dedham Vale before returning for a cup of soup and sandwich lunch at the hotel. The remainder of the day is then again free to relax in the hotel before dinner and entertainment.

Sunday 27th December
After a leisurely breakfast, we depart for the return journey, so home to Newark for mid afternoon/teatime.
